I use OS 8.1 on my 68040 machines so that I can access HFS+.
There is a member doing work on enabling HFS+ in earlier versions of the Mac OS (it's back to Mac OS 7.6 at the moment).
In this case, I'm planning to replace OS 8.1 with OS 7.6 once I get it working...
I don't deny any of this. But Apple did make black terminators for the IIfx and distributed them with the IIfxs. They had a purpose then. Whether they still are the best tool for the job now is another question. I certainly haven't needed to use mine but then I either use built-in termination or...
I think that black terminators are required for rev. A IIfxs.
Apple wouldn't have made if they weren't needed for something.
That being said, I haven't needed mine yet for IIfx.
I have it handy nonetheless.
To add the already excellent list:
If this OS9 is also your file server, then AppleShare IP v6 is good to have.
Files can be stored on SCSI/FireWire drives. Some of the later drives have RAID built in for added security/speed but given the...
The thought came to mind of the HPV card in the PM x100 series.
I wonder of this what the first expression of the notion of a graphics cards from Apple that sat in the PDS slot and may very well have taken off had the internal video not been so damned good. Then Apple would have eventually said...
I don't know if it is related, but since I did a recent upgrade of my IIfx: FWB JackHammer, SCSI2SD v6, 2x Meow-Toasts & ROM-inator II as well as 64MB RAM that was built by someone in this fora, I cannot change the boot volume. I have 8 volumes and three of which run Systems 6.0.7, 7.1.1 & Mac...
What would be the benefit of using both buses simultaneously?
The PDS-bus is faster and has higher bandwidth than the NuBus bus.
Could it be that the card is doing two things simultaneously and making use of both buses for that purpose, say processing video and outputting it at the same time?
I second this suggestion.
It is probably the simplest way to get mac software online onto your Plus.
Mini vmac on the PC might be helpful too.

The advantage of an ethernet connection is to be able to get files on and off your SE/30 with relative ease.
I use a Mac Mini G4 running Mac OS 9.2.2 as my server and I use to access the Macintosh Garden.
It then connects to old macs and I connect with them to the mac Mini G4.
Pay attention to...
OK. I am in Switzerland, just to let you know.
I'll get it out tonight and send you some pictures of it.
I have never used it. It's previous owner sent it along with some other stuff I was buying from him and told me that it worked the last time he had used it.
I never got around to it, alas.
A pristine IIfx dropped into my hands and my Q610 started acting odd on me, so the RocketRAIDs have been put on the backburner for the moment.
The Acard RAID IDE cards pop up every now & then in the Trading Post fora. Daily vigilance should eventually reap rewards.
Take/disconnect everything out that you don't need: CF card reader, all but RAM stick, IDE hard disc, AirPort card, all PCI cards.
You need one stick of RAM, the optical drive plugged into one of the IDE ports and the AGP graphics card.
Is the boot disc a CD-ROM or a DVD?
Is the disc burned...
